The FutureFest is Now

Six Days of Meaningful Engagement
09.24 >> 10.01
All Virtual

The Life Design Future Festival is a 6-day immersive experience that combines networking, professional development workshops, a career-fair style trade-show floor, and engaging speakers and concerts. Following two-days of alumni, employer, and educator led workshops (Thursday/Friday), the main festival will take place Monday through Thursday of the following week. Each day of the festival will consist of four virtual engagement arenas (“stages”) and three competitions (Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday), each of which will be named for a JHU school or for a corporate / employer sponsor.

 

The Four Stages

Main Stage
Dance Floor
Trade Show Floor
Puzzle Competition

The Main Stage showcases speakers and performers who connect career and professional development with inspirational Life Design themes .

The dance floors offer networking and alumni & employer panel events, round-robin coffee chats, structured happy hours, and presentations. 

The trade show floor closely resembles a traditional career fair. 25-40 employers will be available in virtual booths each day.

Puzzle Competition that gives our students an opportunity to showcase their talents in a practical and generative way.
